Match Preview

Sky Blues wait on trio Coventry will assess Lee Carsley, Sammy Clingan and Ben Turner ahead of the visit of Swansea. Skipper Carsley (Achilles and hernia surgery), fellow midfielder Clingan and centre-back Ben Turner (both knee) are each on the verge of making their long-awaited returns, with Turner the longest absentee having not played since early November. Speaking ahead of Tuesday`s encounter against the Swans, Sky Blues manager Aidy Boothroyd said: "I`m hopeful of having three back for the game, I`ll be very, very disappointed if we don`t have one back." That one is likely to be Clingan who is the most advanced in his recovery having got through 30 minutes of a practice match unscathed on Thursday. However, central defender James McPake (lower back complaint) remains in the treatment room. With Coventry not playing over the weekend, Boothroyd completed a scouting mission on Swansea as they comfortably brushed aside an injury-ravaged Doncaster 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium. And he knows his charges will have their work cut out against a side only narrowly out of the top two on goal difference. Mark Gower is expected to make a full recovery in time for Swansea. The midfielder was forced off with a dead leg just before half-time in Saturday`s convincing win over Doncaster but should be fine as the Swans look to continue their promotion march at the Ricoh Arena. Manager Brendan Rodgers heads into the encounter with no other new injury or suspension concerns from the weekend, although defender Garry Monk (knee) and midfielder Andrea Orlandi (thigh) continue to miss out. Rodgers may opt to shuffle his ranks slightly against the Sky Blues, with one eye also on Saturday`s huge clash with fellow promotion contenders Leeds. Midfielders Darren Pratley and Leon Britton both found themselves on the bench against Doncaster but may return to the starting XI against Boothroyd`s side. Rodgers said: "We played exceptionally well at home when we played against them (Coventry) and got the win (2-1 in September). We know it`s going to be a tough game over there, two contrasting styles, but Aidy`s obviously a very good young manager and will have his team well organised and set up."

Match Report

Dobbie keeps Swans on course Stephen Dobbie fired Swansea up to second in the npower Championship with the only goal of the game to see off unfortunate Coventry. The visitors were firmly in the ascendancy in the opening quarter but the Sky Blues took hold from then onwards and were ultimately made to pay for a lack of killer instinct in the final third. The engaging encounter could well have taken a different path had Swans goalkeeper Dorus de Vries been punished for tugging the shirt of Lukas Jutkiewicz at the start of the second half, with a penalty and possible red card waved away by referee Keith Stroud. Swansea gave warning of their threat in the 74th minute as Dobbie, Luke Moore and Scott Sinclair combined to hit the woodwork an amazing three times in one move. And Dobbie made no mistake two minutes later as he pounced from 12 yards to round off a well-worked move, leaving the visitors to close the game out and Coventry boss Aidy Boothroyd wondering what might have been. Early on, Swansea's Darren Pratley overhit a pass with team-mates well placed, Craig Beattie provided a routine save for Keiren Westwood before Sinclair saw his effort deflected wide. Ashley Williams fired over from Mark Gower`s corner as Swansea continued to dictate play. But Coventry were finally sparked into life by an Aron Gunnarsson effort which forced a parried stop from De Vries. The chance led to a period of pressure from the hosts in which Marlon King drilled wide and Richard Wood saw his header tipped over the crossbar by Dutchman De Vries. Boothroyd`s side were providing plenty of attacking threat by now and De Vries was called upon to produce a super diving save to push David Bell`s 18-yard effort over, before Gunnarsson headed off target from the resulting corner. The half-time whistle brought a goalless conclusion to an appealing opening 45 minutes, and it took just over 60 second-half seconds for the game`s contentious moment. Sky Blues full-back Richard Keogh sent over a high cross from the right which was fumbled by De Vries, and the Swans keeper then pulled back the shirt of Jutkiewicz with the striker ready to pounce. Yet, despite huge appeals from all quarters, Stroud may have been unsighted as he somehow waved away the claims. De Vries was again the scourge of Coventry in the 57th minute as he made a great stop to turn away King`s free-kick having initially stepped the wrong way. Coventry were making all the running after the break, with Swansea struggling to get a foothold on the game. But they came within inches of taking the lead in the 74th minute as Dobbie hit a post from close range, fellow substitute Moore placed the rebound against the bar before Sinclair headed onto a post at the third time of asking. Yet Dobbie made no mistake from 12 yards two minutes later, finishing Nathan Dyer`s pass to down a Coventry side who deserved a share of the spoils.
